    give them a chance.

    The amplifiers will last for many years. Actually I was looking into class H technology and some high end companies like Carver have used that style amp in their home theater amplifiers. I figure that 8 EP2500s at 450 watts a channel should keep me saaisfied for the next 10 years or more from an amplification standpoint. And it is never too loud. You can just turn the volume down and make adjustments if it is too loud. Anyhow, I really do enjoy these speakers. I recently hooked up my DCM KX 12 Series 2 speakers which are like Cerwin Vegas a bit and was not that happy with how harsh the highs from the horn style tweeter can get and once you've heard subs driven with a lot of power at the low end it is hard to hear any floorstander the same again. Anyhow, thanks for your advice.

    not all cerwin vegas are horn loaded though...

    check their VE series for example...

    I don't like too harsh sounds neither

    Keep them spinning,

    You guys keep telling him that his speakers don't go up as high as they claim they do -- I think that's the wrong response. The speakers might very well go up that high. They just sound like carp within that frequency range. There is no spec for "carplike". If there was, I think those tiny Sony's and JBL's would be up there.

    ...while back there were all those ceramic and piezo tweets that could do that...of course they sound like an un-oiled band saw cutting through a squirming pig...

    I built a pair of speakers with piezo tweeters back in the 70's. After about 20 minutes I pulled them apart to start over. Like nails on a chalk board.

    what are piezo tweeters good for?
    I had a pair of radioshack many years ago... and they really helped the highs, but had a horrible hissing sound often...

    They are good at looking great on a spec sheet. They go very high but sound awful. That's why they cost 0.65 each.

    Piezo and Sony, wow I can't wait to buy some. I love a forum format butttt honestly how aweful can life truly be to sit here and join in and not only reply once but multiple times in one thread. I can think of a different kind of multiple that would be allot more fun, and I don't mean vitamin's either. LOL

    Have a better life and be sure and buy Sony.....NOT :sleep:

    Piezo tweeter technology has come a looooong way since then. Gallo uses a cylindrical (sp?) piezo tweeter on their Ref3 and there's another hi-end manufacturer out there using them as well, although the name escapes me at the moment.

    Do you know if they use a resistor in parallel? I've heard that this can help tame them. I put 2 piezo's in series with each other, that were in parallel with a soft dome. I still had to pull them out and snip the wires.

    Dude, we tried this already, visit the "Lets help SVI" thread...

    we'll all go over to his house and drag him kicking and screaming into a high end show and watch him start crying when he hears his first pair of hifi speakers... *sniff*

    I'm not going anywhere near his house. If all this other stuff wasn't enough, the fact that he still has his cat's litterbox by his bed scares the bejesus out of me. His cat died 2 years ago. I guess the litterbox is some kind of 'turd vigil' for the cat or something.
